I like to take alot of landscape and nature pics,also I take some pics at school sporting events and family outings, boating etc. I have been wanting to get a SLR for about a year but I just cant seem to make up my mind. Right now I have a cannon S31s and an olympus C750 both are P&S.I get good pics but would like something more. I really like the live view and have been concidering one of the new olympus cameras E410 or E510 that are due out next month or should I go with the Panasonic lumix.Do I go with a kit or piece it toghter. I want a long zoom with the pics of wildlife that I take. PLEASE HELP
If you go with Olympus, look at the 50-200mm lens for wildlife. It has an equivalent of 100-400 in 35mm terms. Combine it with the 1.4x tc and you should be able to get all but the smallest of birds. The 14-54mm, 28-108 equiv. is on my camera most of the time and does well with most landscapes. if you are into forced perspective, OLY does have some really wide glass.
Thanks I'll try that
